Bill Ayers Wants Sarah Palin to Share Talk Show

During the presidential campaign, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin highlighted Barack Obama's connection to former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers – charging that the candidate was "palling around with terrorists." Now Ayers wants to bury the hatchet with a joint talk show.

"Pallin' Around with Sarah and Bill," is the name Ayers has come up with, according to a report by CNN.

Though Ayers sent her a note after the election touting the virtues of such a show, he concedes, "I haven't heard back."

The revelation will be featured in the next New York Times magazine.

Not surprisingly, Ayers was not asked to stump for Obama during the campaign. In fact, there was no communication at all, according to Ayers.

"They apparently didn't want to call me, and I certainly wouldn't have initiated it," he said.

With his interview with the magazine, Ayers broke a long silence. He granted no interviews during the campaign – although he claims that this reticence to confront the media was not at the insistence of the Obama camp.

As to his feelings toward now President Obama, Ayers told the New York Times that in his opinion, Obama's election was "a strike against white supremacy."

Ayers told the magazine that he still looks at himself as a "radical," but Obama is, in his opinion, a "moderate Democrat."

Fueled by outrage over racism and the Vietnam War, the Weather Underground waged a low-level war against the U.S. government through much of the 1970s, bombing targets across the country.
